CHANDIGARH: Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar has said some people are agitating just for the "sake of protest" against the Centre's farm laws, which reflects their "vested political intent".

He, however, said the Centre will be ready for any amendement in the laws if required.

According to a statement, Khattar said this after a meeting with state MPs in New Delhi, in which their suggestions were sought for the next state budget to be presented in the Haryana assembly in March.

Commenting on the agitation against the farm laws, Khattar said the Centre is clearly of the view that the three laws are for the benefit of farmers and will give a boost to the agricultural sector.

Some people are protesting just for the 'sake of protest' and it shows their 'vested political intent', the chief minister said according to the statement.

However, if through a positive dialogue, any amendment in these laws is required, then the Union government will always be ready for it, the CM said, adding that he is hopeful that the issue will be resolved soon.

In the meeting held at the residence of Union minister Rattan Lal Kataria on Friday, the CM said suggestions and expectations of the MPs regarding the development of their constituencies will be looked into during the preparation of the state budget.
